Research output: Contribution to journalShort ReviewOther


The potential influence of cancer on marital status may be distinctive owing to the intricate lifestyle and social modifications that arise throughout the course of life. Marriage can offer substantial social and emotional backing to individuals with cancer, in addition to furnishing crucial resources during therapy and convalescence via a partner’s earnings and medical insurance benefits. However, the institution of marriage may exhibit reduced resilience towards the various stressors associated with cancer treatment and recovery, while simultaneously encountering additional challenges such as the presence of young children or decreased job stability. The emotional and financial burdens associated with cancer may have a significant impact on the marital relationships of cancer survivors, potentially resulting in divorce.
